About our research
In our research , we employ tools from a variety of areas in order to formally analyze scenarios in which multiple agents with possibly conflicting preferences interact. As such, our work can be located at the intersection of mathematics, economics, political science, and computer science. In particular, we focus on axiomatic and computational aspects of social choice theory and game theory, and on the emerging application area of digital  democracy  (aka e-democracy or interactive democracy).
Current topics of interest include:
- approval voting
- multiwinner rules
- proportional representation
- digital democracy
